So, I have always described myself as an easy-going girl. Someone who goes with the flow and isn't ruffled by much. (My fiance would laugh out-loud at this. And so would my parents.) And I guess my behavior this morning proved me wrong once again. Anyway, this morning, I found myself faced with a dilemma. See, I had a food plan. And in my head, last night, it made sense. And then this morning...well it didn't.
So today, Nathan and I got to work at 5 a.m. Did you hear me? 5 a.m. Anyway, I ate a good sized bowl of oatmeal at 6 a.m. (FYI--I actually used real oats and milk as opposed to my usual standby of an instant packet and water. It was delicious). So I expected my substantial breakfast to hold me over until noon. And I was wrong.
By 10 a.m., my stomach was gurgling for more food. I debated waiting two hours until lunch, but in the end, I caved and allowed myself a small tortilla with peanut butter to tide me over.
Sometimes I feel like such a weakling for needing snacks. But I know that's irrational. Besides if I don't eat when I'm hungry, I'm starving at the next meal and overeat. Or I get cranky while I'm waiting. How do you feel about listening to your stomach signals even if they go "off plan"?
